I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news. The good news: John Calipari and Karl Towns will be on “First Take” on Thursday to preview the NBA Draft. The bad news: It’s “First Take,” which means Stephan A. Smith will also be on. (Skip Bayless’ last day at ESPN is today.) Alas, we’ll be watching regardless because John Calipari is John Calipari. Cal will do the entire first hour of the show with Smith starting at 10 a.m. ET on ESPN.
There’s never a dull moment when Calipari’s on TV, especially when it’s with Stephen A. Smith. Here’s his last appearance on First Take back in 2014:
Will Calipari stick to his guns in saying Jamal Murray should be the number one pick? Probably, but with Ulis’ stock slipping, I’d imagine he’ll spend a lot of time telling NBA teams how they’ll regret not taking him.
